Heh. And who has tested more _total_ keys? ;) According to the graphs,
UIUC: ~350 trillion. GA Tech: ~80 trillion.

You're only number one when you're at the top of the list. :) If those
machines had proper DNS, you'd be number 1. S'okay, though. UIUC
people have claims to machines outside our domain too, and it adds up to
more than 85000*2^20, so we're still winning.

Get those machines some DNS, and we can really get this show on the road.
:P I do have to give GA Tech credit... they sure did scare up a lot of
machines in a hurry! Where were you all about 3 weeks ago? We could have
been doing this fighting for first back then. (And gotten more keys done!
